BURT MYERS CLAIMS “FALL BRAWL 125” WIN AT ORANGE COUNTY

Spencer Davis has Dominate Car, but Cut Tire Cost Him Winchance for win

(10-25-2014 Rougemont, NC): The “Fall Brawl 125” for the KOMA Unwind Modified Madness Series changed from a brawl into a battle for Burt Myers Saturday night as he had to battle from deep in the pack after a long caution period pit stop in the return to Orange County Speedway for the first time in six years to one of the best crowds of the season at the super-fast 3/8 mile track.

Myers qualified his Modified on the pole for the event followed by his brother Jason, Spencer Davis and Tim Brown but it was no walk-in-the-park for the win.

B. Myers grabbed the point at the start and Davis slipped into second on the opening lap and hounded Myers for a couple more laps before a power move put the Dawsonville, GA driver in the lead for the next 63.

That reign came to an end on lap 66 when someone dumped a water bottle in the turn four groove bringing out the second caution period of the night. Most of the front running teams headed to pit road under the caution period for a fresh Hoosier tire and adjustments to their cars. Most were quick stops but B. Myers stayed on pit road for some extra adjustments as well as his tire change. Results

Davis Wins Southern Mod Tour Rookie Honors

Georgia Native Is 2014 Sunoco Rookie Of The Year Award Winner

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (October 20, 2014) – When a driver makes a switch from a full-bodied stock car to a modified car, one of the best things he can do is partner up with an established team to help him with his learning curve of competing in a drastically different car.

Dawsonville, Georgia, native Spencer Davis made the wise decision to team up with Hillbilly Racing and veteran car owner/crew chief David Hill and it paid immediate dividends in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour as Davis won the 2014 Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award.

“One of the best things we did was compete with David and his Hillbilly Racing team,” he added. “I might have been a new driver, but the team has years and years of experience, and have won races and championships and they know how to get it done. They were able to use notes from previous races at tracks to set the cars up to help me each week and that is a big advantage versus me being a new driver with a new team and we all are learning for the first time together. They gave me a car ready to go each week. That was big in helping me with my transition.” more info..

David Riggs Passes Away

A Car Owner, A Friend, an A True Champion

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – David Riggs, the patriarch of Riggs Racing, one of the most successful teams in the history of the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour, passed away last night after a long battle with cancer.

Riggs got his start in modified racing in 1962 fielding cars in events for over four decades. 

He was also an inaugural team owner when the tour began operation in 2005 and along with his son Jeff, won the 2005 and 2006 championships with driver Junior Miller.

In 2008 David Riggs put a young Andy Seuss behind the wheel full-time and proceeded to win seven races with the Hampstead, New Hampshire native.

Riggs quit racing full-time after 2010, when Jeff died unexpectedly in the offseason. Seuss continued using some of Riggs'cars after teaming up with his current owner Eddie Harvey in 2011.

Riggs also fielded cars in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour for drivers such as Jamie Tomaino, Tony Jankowiak, and Tim Arre, and won the prestigious modified race at Martinsville Speedway with Johnny Bryant in 1985.

“David Riggs and his entire family helped get the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour moving forward and their dedication to the series is appreciated,” said Brad Moran, managing director of NASCAR Touring Series. “On behalf of everyone at NASCAR we send our condolences to his wife Margaret and the entire Riggs family.”
